I am having sharp pains in my rib cage and left side of chest. Do i need a medical attention ?

I ve been having sharp pains under my rib cage that go down to about my bellybutton and occasionally in my lower abdomen . i ve also started to get sharp pains in the left side of my chest , especially when I breathe deeply. These symptoms have been going off and on for about a month, with the last spell lasting almost a week. My heart beats fast alot and I get very anxious- what could this all be?
